Would this be a definite no-no?

TattieHowkerz Mon 21-Dec-15 16:52:33

No.

ElsaAintAsColdAsMe Mon 21-Dec-15 16:54:09

Definitely a no.

mrsschu Mon 21-Dec-15 21:51:58

Sounds great, go for it.

mrsschu Mon 21-Dec-15 21:52:22

Kidding of course and pretty sure the OP is kidding too...

i know someone with those initials its not her fault her mom remarried and she wanted to change her name to be the same as her mom and sibs no one really notices

It's honestly fine.

Nobody under 35 even recognises it as the antiquated term for STI .

By the time your offspring are of noticeable age it won't at all be common parlance.

Don't let it put you off. If you're still bothered add a middle name/initial.

Agree that it's fine.

A colleague of mine acquired the same initials when she got married and changed her name. We use initials fairly frequently at work and she simply uses her middle name to create a three letter initial.

I'm not sure that anyone would even notice? It's not a term/abbreviation that's used at all these days.

I have no idea what that means! confused

Don't do it.
Don't do it.
Don't do it.

It's a definite no from me.

Its an age thing. I would say definitely no but as PPs have said, its not a term that is used anymore. The younger generation will know STD or STI.

As a result I don't think the child would ever get any grief over it.

fakenamefornow Tue 22-Dec-15 09:01:32

I agree that the term is no longer used, I think it'll be fine.

Mrsindecision Tue 22-Dec-15 09:02:31

Cones example above is further proof that it IS an issue as her colleague had to use a middle initial to avoid having the initials VD at work.

ImNotAFlower Tue 22-Dec-15 09:02:41

These are my initials since I married...... I no longer initial cash back grin

AuntieStella Tue 22-Dec-15 09:04:02

No, don't do it.

It's still in use in other anglophone countries, and so will stay current via films, telly etc. As well as continuing as a well-recognised colloquial term in UK.

Good point, Mrs. I. I hadn't considered that interpretation.
